Paper Abstract

The results of the experimental investigation of a relativistic backward-wave oscillator with an electron beam formed by a thermionic injector, are presented. The influence of vacuum conditions on the device operation was studied. Maximum radiation power 5 MW (efficiency not less than 10%) at pulse width 8 microsecond(s) that corresponded to electron current pulse duration was obtained in the X-band experiments. The microwave radiation band was near 10 MHz that corresponded to frequency change depending on voltage.
